Welcome to the ECCL

Extreme Conditions Chemistry Laboratory @ Jožef Stefan Institute

Our aim is to explore and understand chemistry at extreme conditions of pressure, temperature, and chemical reactivity.

The ECCL was established and is being built by the members of the Department of Inorganic Chemistry and TechnologyK1 (Dr. Matic Lozinšek, Dr. Blaž Alič) and the Electronic Ceramics DepartmentK5 (Dr. Mirela Dragomir, Dr. Kristian Radan), who won the Director’s Fund project in 2019.

We are grateful for funding from the European Research Council - ERC, Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship, Jožef Stefan Institute, Slovenian Research Agency - ARRS, the Royal Society of Chemistry (Researcher Mobility Grant), and from a Marie Curie International Outgoing Fellowship.
